Private networks, especially of large clouds or service offerings, are difficult to maintain. New services and members must be bolted on manually, with no implicit coordination. As they grow, the menagerie of encryption types, proxy services, join/leave methods, and so forth can get messy. GoGuard offers a solution: a managed network, where all services are treated exactly the same, with the encryption and proxying handled innately. The GoGuard service is transparent: members do not even know they are running on top of GoGuard, secure: member peering is wireguard-encrypted with keys handled by GoGuard, homogeneous: the network is entirely agnostic to the services running on it and all join, leave, and health-check in the same way; mesh network: GoGuard proxies data from member to member until it reaches its final destination and, thanks to its transparency, they do not even know proxying needed to occur! GoGuard helps backend network engineers by making management and scalability of enterprise networks easy.
